Saltash Heritage Museum & Local History Centre

SALTASH MUSEUM - Saltash Heritage finally achieved one of its original aims, when, in 2000, it opened the Saltash Museum and Local History Centre at 17 Lower Fore Street, Saltash. There is a small permanent display about the history and well-known 'characters' of Saltash, and a temporary display is mounted during the summer months (April to November).

PLANS - Saltash Heritage hopes to continue with its aims of collecting and preserving local historic photographs, ephemera etc., in order that they may be kept for future generations to learn about the area.

Volunteer Museum Stewards are always welcome. Have fun, make friends - no particular skills required. Please note that stewarding periods are 2 hour sessions & full training is given.

Anyone wishing to help, please contact: 01752 842087
